Almost Every Single Ticket for This Performance of Hamilton Will Be $10


If ever there was a time to enter any lottery in the history of lotteries, it’s here and now. And no, I don’t know what the MegaMillions jackpot is worth at the moment, because I’m talking about the #HAM4HAM lottery, which offers winners a small number of $10 tickets to every performance of Hamilton.

But on December 19, that’s going to change. For one night only, the Pantages is providing not 20, not 50, not even 100 $10 tickets to the 8 p.m. performance. It’s offering 2,550 tickets for $10, which is nearly every single seat in the theater. Which means you better clear your calendar on December 19 and pray to the Hamil-gods that you hit it big.

Here’s how to enter:

(1) Download the official Hamilton app for free in the app store or via Google Play.

(2) Enter the lottery (duh). You can enter any time between Monday, December 4, through Sunday, December 17. One entry per person, people—don’t get greedy.

(3) On Monday, December 18, the 2,550 lucky winners will receive a single-use code from Ticketmaster, which is good for up to two $10 tickets.

(4) If you win, your tickets can be picked up from the Pantages’ will-call window 90 minutes prior to the performance. Remember to bring an ID, because your life will be ruined if you win these things but can’t actually see the show.

And that’s it. Do not throw away your shot.
